Will the Cleveland Cavaliers Break a New 27 Consecutive Losses Record: Odds Now Up

Cleveland Cavaliers 27 losses

Bookmaker.com on Thursday afternoon has released odds on whether the Cleveland Cavaliers break a new record for futility with 27 consecutive losses.  So far, their 26 losses have tied the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for the most in professional sports history. 

Bookmaker.com has made hitting the number “27” a favorite at -190 while failing to reach this milestone and winning against the Los Angeles Clippers Friday night would pay out $15 for every $10 bet.

"I'm mad as hell," said Cleveland head coach Byron Scott, who kept the postgame locker room closed for more than 30 minutes following another embarrassing loss to the Detroit Pistons. "I can deal with losing, especially when our guys play as hard as they have in the last couple weeks, but I find it very hard to deal with when guys don't come out ready to play."

"Everybody's mad as hell," guard Daniel Gibson said when told of his coach's surly mood. "To lose like that and for it to get to this point and still sometimes not see a sense of urgency, I can see why it would push you to that point. What are you going to do? It's either do it or don't.

"The guys have to figure that out."

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Oregon Ducks at Washington State Cougars Betting Pick

Not much has gone right for Washington State this season, including three losses in four PAC-12 contests. While the Cougars were able to bring down UCLA earlier in the year, Washington State has dropped its other three conference games by an average of 14 points apiece. Although Washington State will have an opportunity to protect its home floor in Thursday night’s PAC-12 action, they’ll be facing off against an Oregon Ducks team with two victories in three attempts on the road this season.

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

NBA Betting – Portland Trail Blazers at Houston Rockets

Just last season the Portland Trail Blazers won 53 games and reached the Western Conference final. They are currently on pace to win 33 games and miss the postseason for the first time in seven years. There still is plenty of basketball left with the Blazers hitting the midway point and snatching a victory last time out. But the West is stacked and the Houston Rockets are one of the teams at the top of the standings. Led by NBA scoring leader James Harden, Houston is one of five times within three games of each other in the congested West race and look to get back in the win column after dropping Tuesday’s game in Memphis.
